Caruso is the music cabinet designed by Paolo Cappello for Miniforms.
The speaker recalls the old gramophones, but this version is entirely digital, as a Bluetooth connection keeps the tunes coming.
"I wanted to design something that gives back a shape to the music even now in digital age, something with a strong iconic appeal. A product that everybody immediately can understand as a cabinet that plays music without even listening at music”.
The cabinet comes in lacquer, as well as natural oak and walnut. As for the ceramic speaker, there’s red, pink, yellow, green, anthracite, white or gold.
